Love, God, and Vestries
From Philippians 4: “Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down.”
Tonight is the first night of our annual vestry retreat at Roslyn in Richmond. We welcome new members and dedicate ourselves to working together for the community of God in St. George’s Episcopal Church. It is a time to grow together as a family.
Jesus said, whenever two or more come together in my name, I will be there. We laid the foundation for joining as a family tonight, under the leadership of our rector and associate rector. It was a time of love, laughter, learning, and growing in the Kingdom of God.
We came together is God’s embrace as we shared our hopes and wishes for the coming year. Male and female, black and white, it makes no difference to God; it makes no difference to us. We are all God’s children. We know it; we love it. Our prayers are for the rest of humanity to feel the same warm, loving embrace of a caring God.
